Told all my friends that I saw your incredible, moving film. I hope it plays in theaters all over the country. We need more films like this, that tell our stories and validate our truth.
I saw “Catching Sight of Thelma and Louise” at the Napa Film Festival. It won my personal “best in show” award: smart, insightful, high-quality. Kudos to Jennifer Townsend and her subjects for their openness, honesty and willingness to share their pain on screen.
The parallel relationships between Thelma and Louise and Butch and Sundance – with that final scene from Butch Cassidy was masterfully edited. I thought it worked really well. It ‘landed’ that our culture has such a marginal view of women, especially in film and media.
I appreciated how you referenced scenes from the movie as a reminder. It really took me ‘there’ and to my own memories of the movie as I listened to the discussion so I felt included. The editing felt integrated and seamless. Nice!
I stayed engaged with the commentary throughout, never felt lost and definitely felt it took the time to say what everyone needed to say without belaboring any given point.
It is an excellent documentary about the impact T&L made on its viewers 25 years ago and today, and yes, about sexual harassment. This screening couldn’t have been more timely. I loved what the director, Jennifer Townsend, said: “I want to change the dialogue from #MeToo to #NoMore.”
